The Red Sox host the Mets on Saturday, and their starters are getting some work. Eduardo Rodriguez is on the mound, though unlike the rest rotation he has already pitched this spring. Joining him on the field for this one will be a host of regulars. That includes Dustin Pedroia, who is making his second appearance of 2019. Saturday will also be the first time this year we see J.D. Martinez in the outfield. He starts in right field. Blake Swihart gets the nod behind the plate while Christian Vazquez is today’s DH.

Here are the full lineups:
